Real-time monitoring to ensure regulatory compliance

We enabled HCL to remotely monitor their fleet of water sensors deployed across Canada.

When HCL approached WTI, they were manually retrieving water sensor data - often in extremely remote locations in Northern Canada.

This required extensive travel and manpower to visit sites, and meant potential compliance issues went undetected between collection periods. With a sprawling fleet of deployments, HCL needed a way to rein in travel costs by remotely accessing this data from their head office in Edmonton, Alberta. The real-time data enables HCL to detect sensor malfunctions and identify regulatory exceedances, allowing HCL to keep its clients in compliance with governmental regulations.
